Our beloved friend Bret Haller, friend of Venice and creator of Yo Venice died 04.09.14. He was a kind, generous, great soul and stood fearless in the face of death. Here are some photos we took of him and together throughout the years. Though you hated it when we took photos of you…. we are so glad we did. We love and miss you Bret!
A message from his family:
“Bret of Yo Venice died this morning after a long and brave battle with cancer. We appreciate those who have continued to post and keep the forums active. Bret envisioned Yo as a medium for pulling the diverse voices of the community together, and we thank all of you for your contributions in making this a reality.
Plans for a celebration of Bret’s life and a continuance of this site will be announced in the future. Until then, please raise a glass in his honor and post away.”
